She also brought up going to marriage counselling with Barack Obama. As she prepared to be picked up by the monarch in her vehicle, Obama said she "had all this protocol buzzing in my head, and I was like 'don't trip down the stairs and don't touch anybody, whatever you do'". "It's not always enough to lean in because that s- doesn't work".

The expletive was taken as a forceful rejection of the concept advocated by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg in her book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead from 2013.

Then, in what may be an unprecedented slip-up, Obama said the line that threw the audience and internet into a frenzy. Sandberg's book sold more than 4 million copies worldwide and occupied a spot on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year.

"It is impossible to forget that she, like numerous female friends she quotes, is a wealthy, white, married woman with a 'vast support system, '" wrote critic Connie Schultz for the Washington Post.

Prince William reportedly 'voiced doubts' about Meghan Markle
The sisters-in-law have hit headlines over the past week, as many reports having emerged claiming that the pair do not get along. A source close to the Princes told Vanity Fair this would have been "unthinkable" two years ago and added: "A lot has changed".

Obama said her visit to the London school in 2009 inspired her to use her time in the White House to campaign for education for all girls as well as work to combat childhood obesity.

The Mirror told that the former first lady, speaking at an event in London last night, recounted how the Queen quickly made her feel relaxed.

Obama also apologised for her language, saying she "forgot where I was for a moment" although the upfront language did help the crowd erupt. I have been at probably every powerful table that you can think of, I have worked at non-profits, I have been at foundations, I have worked in corporations, served on corporate boards, I have been at G-summits, I have sat in at the United Nations, they are not that smart.

While her time in the White House was often stressful, Obama also found joy and meaning in her work.

WTI oil price slides under $50 per barrel
European oil benchmark Brent stood at just under $60 on Wednesday, while its United States counterpart WTI hovered just above $51. The supply and demand fundamentals remain bearish, but the early price action suggests the technical picture may be improving.

"I'm back now", Obama added, smiling sheepishly. "You don't have room to make mistakes", she said.

"And all the fears and all the challenges that you face - you guys give me a sense of comfort because being the first lady wasn't the easiest job in the world but I got strength from your hope in what I could do for you". "And to walk away from that and to look my parents in the eye and say "I'm not feeling this", she laughed, trailing off at the memory.

The 54-year-old has been candid about her experiences since she began promoting her new book. "If I had anxious about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn't be married to the president of the United States".

"What I'd say is that there's so much opportunity to do good with a platform like that - and I think Meghan can maximize her impact for others, as well her own happiness, if she's doing something that resonates with her personally", she said.
